(WFRV) – The Milwaukee Bucks have officially signed veteran guard Jeff Teague after he was released by Orlando.
Teague started this season playing for the Boston Celtcis and was dealt to Orlando as part of a trade for Evan Fournier.
The now 32-year old guard’s best seasons came in Atlanta between 2013-16 when he played for current Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Teague averaged 16.0 points, 6.5 assists, 2.6 rebounds, and was named an All-Star in 2014-15.
This season he averaged 6.9 points per game while with Boston.

(WFRV) – The Milwaukee Bucks will sign veteran guard Jeff Teague after he clears waivers, according to a report by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Teague was released by the Orlando Magic after being acquired last week in a trade with the Boston Celtics. He will become a free agent once he clears waivers and is eligible to sign with any team.
Teague appeared in 34 games with the Celtics, and averaged 6.9 points per game. That includes a 15 point performance against the Bucks just last week at Fiserv Forum.
This is Teague’s fourteenth season in the NBA, with much of that time being spent with the Atlanta Hawks. One of his head coaches during that time was none other than current Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer.
Milwaukee was also reportedly interested in guard Austin Rivers, and worked out Brandon Knight as well.
There has been no official announcement by the Bucks.
